Sushi
Sushi Roku combines the finest, freshest fish from pristine waters around the globe with the kind of artistry that can only be provided by a mature sushi chef ensuring superlative traditional sushi, together with a splash of California innovation. Sushi Roku is a pioneer of contemporary sushi, incorporating diverse, non-traditional ingredients from Latin America (e.g. jalapeños) and Europe (e.g. olive oil) into its edible works of art. This unique culinary experience that bridges past and present is the result of an eagerness to embrace new ideas and a profound respect for tradition. Sushi Roku’s bold and diverse menu also offers an array of hot and cold specialty appetizers and an extensive selection of exotic entrées.

Took a really long time to get a waiter to come by our table. Food quality is mediocre and over priced. Tuna used on sushi is not sashimi grade, chicken is dry as paper.

The restaurant does a great job at creating physical distancing and also had fun Halloween decorations. Our server was very friendly and attentive and the food was delicious. I could live on the scrumptious Brussel sprout chips. The sushi was super fresh as well. I love this place.

This is a very high end and expensive sushi restaurant but well worth it if you can afford it. We went for a special occasion and ended up seated next to a famous Angels baseball player. Food is fantastic and mixed drinks were very good too.

Can say enough good things about our experience on a Thursday night in early October at Sushi Roku! We sat outside, which was beautiful in the early evening, and chose to order multiple appetizers and small plates rather than entrees. We got the wagyu beef gyoza, ribeye-wrapped asparagus, Chilean sea bass skewer, grilled lamb chops, miso soup, avocado-asparagus roll, and the molten chocolate cake at the end. Every single item was terrific, as was the attentive service from Taylor. The only minor quibble is that I felt the skewer was overpriced for a small amount of sea bass, but really, the taste of everything was terrific. Highly recommended.

Service was so slow & clunky, especially for an early sat night when it was not full. Plus, I put in the reservation that it was a birthday. Nothing! No mention.

Staff did not seem over stretched, yet were inattentive and we had significant waits. Food was good, but the odd cadence of the servers was very disruptive.

Sitting outside while kids are screaming & playing in water & you are right next to a wall isn’t ideal.

Had a 6:30 reservation. Arrived at 6:15. Didn’t get seated for dinner until 7:40! Unacceptable. They were literally setting up an additional dining space at 6:30 on a Saturday. Nothing was comped. Horrible. We had to wait outside standing with masks on for over an hour.

I was very happy with the food. My server was on point. However, even sitting on the patio became stressful when customers were allowed to walk through with no mask on. The patio was crowded, there were a lot of servers, and bussers. So, having customers walking right by our table with no mask on was unacceptable.

I won’t go back during the pandemic unless that changes and customers are required to wear their mask when not seated.

Terrible service. Had to wait a half hour with a reservation. Had my mom and baby with me. Got our order wrong because our server did not take our order. Overcharged is for two rolls when we only received one. Turds.
